Floodgates to close as a precaution

Tides will be higher than usual over the next few days, in particular the 3am and 3pm tide tomorrow (Monday 15th January).

The north westerly wind during spring tides has caused a wind driven surge, so we are closing some of our floodgates.

Some floodgates will remain open but this doesn’t mean we have forgotten to close them.

The forecast will be monitored very closely over the next few days and, if necessary, we will close further floodgates along our seafront.

Our staff will be out monitoring these high tides and operating the sluice gates on the coastal brooks to stop the sea flooding inland.

You can sign up to the Environment Agency’s flood warning service.
